Born on June 13, 1986, Mary-Kate and twin sister Ashley Olsen were hired to portray Michelle Tanner in the series Full House at the age of 5 months. In addition to starring in the show, Mary-Kate and Ashley also starred in several direct to video movies in the early 1990s and once the show ended in 1995, the twins starred in their first big screen movie It Takes Two and several short-lived television series.
After they graduated from high school in 2004, Mary-Kate and Ashley attended New York University, but she took a leave of absence in 2005 to move back to the West Coast and work within her production company, Dualstar. And even though she has lived a life so far that most would love to live, Mary-Kate has also had her share of problems. In 2004 she went into rehab to be treated for anorexia, and then in 2005 when Mary-Kate broke up with her boyfriend, it caused a rift between she and Paris Hilton, espcially he started dating Hilton.
Even though Mary-Kate has had some negative attention recently, she isn't letting slow down what she enjoys doing in her everyday and work life.
